National Restaurant Association 2018 in Chicago – Thank You!

If you attended the National Restaurant Association Show this past week and we got to see you, thank you for stopping by! We loved meeting so many people who are passionate about food and hospitality. It’s a rewarding industry to be a part of, and we know that’s true because everyone at that show was smiling and happy!

We embrace the philosophy “When you focus on your clients’ needs, you will most certainly succeed.” We understand there are many sources for restaurant equipment and supplies, so the difference is people. No matter how technically advanced our world becomes with online shopping, it’s still about people working with people, and we would appreciate the opportunity to work with you. If you’re looking for a particular item, we’ll do everything possible to get you what you need and do it within your budget.

We have completely redesigned our website to serve you better with improved search capabilities, express checkout, easy one-click reordering, and more. See

And of course, there will always be a warm and helpful human voice when you call us at 800-931-0116.

We were very pleased to partner with the talented team from Mobile Pro Kitchens, who build the Rolls Royce of food trucks. You can reach Eddy McDonald at 214-755-6348.

When McCormick Place opened in 1960 it had 320,000 square feet, and today after several expansions it has 2,600,000 square feet making it the largest convention facility in the United States.

According to the Census Bureau, the average size of a house in the U.S. is 2600 square feet,  so that means that McCormick Place could hold 1000 houses and if you stacked them up, probably a lot more!

Later this year McCormick Place will host the International Manufacturing Technology Show, the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, the American Academy of Ophthalmology, and many others.
